Brewers manager: Alleged Braun PED controversy 'hasn't had an effect'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Feb 21, 2013

MARYVALE, Ariz. - Speculation swirls even harder around Brewers slugger Ryan Braun after the ESPN report that there's a growing connection between him and an alleged performance enhancing drug provider.

However, the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers says that the situation "really hasn't had an effect on us."

Ron Roenicke made those comments Wednesday during spring training practice in Maryvale, Arizona.

He also said there needs to be more proof for him to say anything on what happened.

"I don't think there's much there.  We don't have enough information, so it's hard for me to make comments on what's going on, but I think he feels great about it.  It really hasn't made that much difference."
